In accordance with § 351.213(b) of the regulations, an interested party as defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in writing that the Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for which it is requesting a review, and the requesting party must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular producers or exporters. If the interested party intends for the Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must state specifically, on an order–by-order basis, which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover. As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 69 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), the Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise subject to antidumping findings and orders. See also the Import Administration Web site at https:// www.ia.ita.doc.gov. Six copies of the request should be submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. The Department also asks parties to serve a copy of their requests to the Office of Antidumping/ Countervailing Operations, Attention: Sheila Forbes, in room 3065 of the main Commerce Building. Further, in accordance with section 351.303(f)(l)(i) of the regulations, a copy of each request must be served on every party on the Department’s service list. The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation’’ for requests received by the last day of April 2005. If the Department does not receive, by the last day of April 2005, a request for review of entries covered by an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice and for the period identified above, the Department will instruct Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of (or bond for) estimated antidumping or countervailing duties required on those entries at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to continue to collect the cash deposit previously ordered. This notice is not required by statute but is published as a service to the international trading community. Dated: March 23, 2005. Holly A.

Filing Information

    As a courtesy, we are making information related to sunset 
proceedings, including copies of the Department's regulations regarding 
sunset reviews (19 CFR 351.218) and Sunset Policy Bulletin, the 
Department's schedule of sunset reviews, case history information 
(i.e., previous margins, duty absorption determinations, scope 
language, import volumes), and service lists available to the public on 
the Department's sunset Internet Web site at the following address: 
https://ia.ita.doc.gov/sunset/.
    All submissions in these sunset reviews must be filed in accordance 
with the Department's regulations regarding format, translation, 
service, and certification of documents. These rules can be found at 19 
CFR 351.303. Also, we suggest that parties check the Department's 
sunset website for any updates to the service list before filing any 
submissions. The Department will make additions to and/or deletions 
from the service list provided on the sunset website based on 
notifications from parties and participation in these reviews. 
Specifically, the Department will delete from the service list all 
parties that do not submit a substantive response to the notice of 
initiation.
    Because deadlines in a sunset review can be very short, we urge 
interested parties to apply for access to proprietary information under 
administrative protective order (``APO'') immediately following 
publication in the Federal Register of the notice of initiation of the 
sunset review. The Department's regulations on submission of 
proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business 
proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304-306.

Information Required from Interested Parties

    Domestic interested parties (defined in section 771(9)(C), (D), 
(E), (F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)) wishing to 
participate in these sunset reviews must respond not later than 15 days 
after the date of publication in the Federal Register of the notice of 
initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate. The required 
contents of the notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department's regulations, if 
we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one 
domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will 
automatically revoke the orders without further review. See 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii).
    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in the sunset review must file 
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of the notice of initiation. The 
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific 
basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain 
information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties. 
Also, note that the Department's information requirements are distinct 
from the Commission's information requirements. Please consult the 
Department's regulations for information regarding the Department's 
conduct of sunset reviews.\1\ Please consult the Department's 
regulations at 19 CFR Part 351 for definitions of terms and for other 
general information concerning antidumping and countervailing duty 
proceedings at the Department.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a 
number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for 
rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was 
insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset 
regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 
351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual 
requests for extension of that five-day deadline based upon a 
showing of good cause.
